Whitney Pilot Review

Pilot Scoop: Whitney

Whitney Cummings's eponymous sitcom is one of Fall TV's new shows fighting for your DVR's attention, so before it premieres, here is my two cents on the Whitney pilot. The half-hour comedy stars Cummings as a woman living with her boyfriend Alex (Chris D'Elia), happily unmarried but still dealing with the pressure of society and loved ones to get married.

Where it works: Whitney and Alex's live-in relationship is modern and relatable, and there are a couple of bits that are really funny.

Where it doesn't: Though Cummings is the mastermind behind the show, her personality is a bit too over the top to carry the show. Indeed, she may work better behind-the-scenes: she created new series 2 Broke Girls, a pilot I loved.


You might like this show if: If you think NBC's Thursday night comedy block could use more relationship drama.

When it's on: Thursdays on NBC at 9:30 p.m.

Wow, I did not except that to be so funny! I'll definitely be at least checking it out, if not only because I am already loving the cast and this promo was hilarious...

I'm hoping it'll be funny, but it does look a bit over the top.

it could be cute but then again it could be very forgettable. we'll have to wait and see i suppose. i think that i'd enjoy it but maybe as a DVR type thing.
